Can’t beat the quality/price/channels and support

I don’t leave reviews very often, but thought this might come in handy for someone (perhaps fellow apes) that research as much as I do. I could not recommend Philo any higher!! The user interface is seamless across every platform. Whether streaming on my smart TV, laptop, or phone, there are absolutely no hiccups between stopping on one device and resuming at the same point on a new one. In terms of navigation, it’s so simple that even apes love using it. I was nervous about cancelling my cable and only having Philo, but as soon as I made the change, my reservations were gone. Philo is a game changer! It’s been able to help me budget better while not sacrificing what I love, which is TV shows! And crayons.. and tendies. I like the app.

Love philo

I picked Philo after taking a good look at what I actually watched on cable. I discovered that there were only a few channels that I actually watched. I was totally wasting my money plus cable was always raising my costs every month. It was a little stressful cutting out cable. I researched the ruku idea and found subscriptions that I could add that had a channel for every program we watched. The only one was Philo. I’m adjusting to missing my favorite news channels but Philo is great. I could not be happier with the hundreds of dollars it saves me. And I mean hundreds. I’m sorry that I’ve wasted so much money all of these years. Thank you Ruko and Philo.

You can’t beat the value

I have been cable free for about 4 yrs. I’ve used Direct TV Now (the best performance IMO), Sling, AT&T Watch TV and now Philo. I use an Apple TV 4K and and an Apple TV 4th gen HD.
The pros of the service are:
1) PRICE! Great lineup for the price...definite value.
2) The guide is nicely presented and easy to read. 3) The options while watching are a nice touch. You can go back and forward with just the remote. Some services do not offer this or you have to use a separate menu to do it.
4) I can turn the tv off in one room, go into another room and when I turn it on, I can resume the episode I was watching in the other room right where it left off.
5) You can have up to three users for the basic price.

The only real con for me, and it’s not a big issue IMO, is the service will stop sometimes mid show and I get an error message. This happens about once a day and takes about 4 seconds to resolve. I just swipe the service closed and reopen.
